not only is there a 1 in a circle, the "1" is also inverted on some, but the significance of it was to ID magazines made by one subcontractor from another, i have heard that they were mfgd. by either FN or the original Armalite.., what i want to know is, is there a difference in the upright "1" & the inverted "1"......?????

The '1' means it was a commercial mag shipped with the early SP-1's. They will also have a lighter gray looking baseplate with different sized lettering than most military issue mags.

GNR, not disputing your word, but is that info from personal knowledge or did you read about it somewhere ? i ask because i know a person who has been at Colt over 30 years & he said they were a "subcontractor" ID i for one do not know.., i just have 6 of them & 2 have inverted "1"
